YachtCreators has announced a $100 million joint venture with Nassau-Bahamas-based Trinity Atlantic Capital, to finance the construction of premium yacht builds for retail buyers starting in Q1 2022. YachtCreators – the company that has garnered critical acclaim and success with award-winning builds such as the 55-meter Laurentia by Heesen, the 38-meter Nono by Admiral, and 2020’s Best New Series, the LeVen 90 by Van der Valk Shipyard – hosted owners and buyers at the recent Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2021, area where the brokerage firm has sales hubs and more specifically in Fort Lauderdale, Aventura and Miami Beach.
The LeVen 90, their latest flagship and winner of 2020’s Best New Series, drew Trinity’s attention with its breathtaking design while moored near Trinity’s marina-side offices at Albany in Nassau, Bahamas. Trinity is an international financial services firm with a long record financing high value luxury goods around the world, including art, fine wine, private aviation and crypto-currencies. This agreement with YachtCreators constitutes their first commitment to the international market for superyachts.
“This partnership with Trinity is exciting on many levels. It sparks new yacht and superyacht construction both in Europe and here in the USA, which has been a long-held dream of YachtCreators,” says founder, Barin Cardenas. “Further, it provides much-needed construction financing solutions to meet the growing demand of the yacht and superyacht market we’re now experiencing.”
“YachtCreators is a market leader,” said Trinity’s principal, Jim Allan. “We evaluate opportunities to finance growth around the world every day, and James Wilson and I are looking forward to spending some time at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show working with Barin’s team. We couldn’t wait to be a part of their trajectory.”
